287. The Peony Gondola does not move

✮ 287. The Peony Gondola does not move ✮

And after they spoke about this composition tradition Palmina took the complete music score, they heard suddenly this music:

VIDEO: (Violin and Piano (52c) https://youtu.be/d54fOdc9qbw

»Oh, a new creation Palma. I sounds like a style of music from,from….in a few centuries. I love your creations so much!«, said Palmina smiling with shining eyes.
Now she smiled a little bit like Marco Polo’s deep love.

The Peony Gondola moved fast but soft back to the library on Planet Mars.

After they landed they looked around the ancient street and Palma said: »It seems that the Peony Gondola landed here but it is not moving any more. What shall we do?«

»Palma, can you repair the Peony Gondola…?«

Palma went out of the Gondola and walked around the big Gondola to inspect it if there is any damage.

»There is no damage, Palmina. It only does not move any more…«, Palma said like a Master.
After a while he entered the Peony Gondola and sat beside his Pigeon.

»Palma?«, Palmina asked like a little innocent Pigeon.
»Hmm?«
»Can we return to our 16th century in Venice with our Peony Gondola?«
»Yes, Palmina, but the Peony Gondola will bring us to Venice, if it is the right moment.
It seems that the Peony Gondola will tell us that we have to learn, to understand something before we go back into our beloved Venice.

✮ ✮ ✮

Suddenly the Peony Gondola moved fast to Venice in the 18th century.

»Woooh«, sung Palmina like being very happy and she tries to have a hold on her Palma il Giovane.
Palma was also surprised about this fast travel to Venice and made a round mouth.
»But, Palmina…«
»Wooooh, we are driving back to Venice, Palma we can continue our old deep love…«

»…Yes, Palmina, but.. look!.. the People who are wearing other clothes and look this is a later century…«

»A later century in Venice? How much years later…?«
The Gondola landed in Venice along the big Promenade and now they saw this:

✮ ✮ ✮

picture - »Campo Bandiera e Moro« in Venice.png

picture – »Campo Bandiera e Moro« in Venice

They saw the famous composer Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)¹, sitting at the place »Campo Bandiera e Moro« in Venice at the old bakery shop where Palmina’s home is (was – we are over hundred years later) and where she lived, worked as baker’s daughter and famous music teacher who played as young girls the Lute, here in that bakery shop.

»I am hungry, Anna.«, Johann Sebastian said like a big hungry bear.

»Well, let’s order something to eat here at this place…a Pizza or Marco Polo Nudles, how are they called here Spa-, spa-ge-etti«

»Oh yes, Sebastian let’s eat something, we are hungry!…«, little Johanna Carolina said.

And during they ordered something to eat from their table Johann Sebastian observed on the other side of that big place that a group of young girls with beautiful cloth and music instruments came out of the church where Palma’s Uncle once painted a very traditional painting there.

»At today’s rehearsal you played my composition very, very good. I am looking forward to the concert at our San Marco Cathedral. I am proud of you, my girls ,my famous orphan girls orchestra of Venice:

The ‚La Pieta Girls Orchestra‘ of Venice!

From all over the world the people come to Venice to listen our Orchestra!…«

»Padre Vivaldi! It is not only our orchestra…
IT IS BECAUSE OF YOUR GOOD COMPOSITIONS!
Your music the people like to hear all over the world!
This year we will get an Invitation to play in Vienna in Austria at the famous and beautiful Saint Karl’s Cathedral…«

»Is this right, padre Vivaldi…? We make a concert tour to Vienna at the Saint Carl’s Church in Austria?«, an elder girl asked excited.

»Wooho…this are good news!!!!«, a little girl said and jumped in air like a little bird.

»Yes, yes my little spiritual daughters! It is right we are making a concert in Vienna…
Now fast go back to the ‚Ospedale de la Pieta‘ to get the midday lunch. We should not let the cooks wait…you know this sever women will shout with us if we are too late. It is only a few meters to go along the ‚Calle de La Pieta’… Fast, fast, my girls…«

And the girls made »Hooray!!!« and run with their instruments across the place »Campo Bandiera e Moro« and run along the »Calle de la Pieta« where once Palmina had her window over her little garden in the 16th century, over hundred years ago.

* * *

As Palmina saw her old flat in Venice she said to Palma: »Look, my room where I do normally do rehearsal!«

»How often I stood there and played my Mandolin for you, my Palmina. How often you played a music answer from your little window and it was like a little cheek kiss to get this music answer from you…«

She smiled and gave Palma a short cheek-kiss and Palma could feel it and smiled.
He took his Viola da braccio and plucked: c – g – d‘ – a‘

And Palmina answered on her lute: A – D – E – a.

Both smiled.

And they continued to see the Peony Gondola Vision:

* * *

Johann Sebastian Bach ¹) looked at this scene with the girls on the place and his eyes followed the girls which run beside his table.

»Antonio Vivaldi ²)? Maestro Antonio Vivaldi?«, Johann Sebastian said and stood up from his chair.

»Johann Sebastian? Maestro Johann Sebastian Bach from Leipzig in Germany?…
…You, You are in Venice after nearly 35 years?
… Benvegno di Venezia !!!
Benvenuto a Venezia !!! …
Welcome to Venice…«, Antonio Vivaldi said.

¹) * Joh.Seb.Bach (1685 – 1750) – Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johann_Sebastian_Bach

»Johann Sebastian Bach (31 March [O.S. 21 March] 1685 – 28 July 1750) was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He is known for instrumental compositions such as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations, and vocal music such as the St Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor. Since the 19th-century Bach Revival he has been generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time.«

²) * Antonio Vivaldi (1678 – 1741) – Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antonio_Vivaldi

»Antonio Lucio Vivaldi (4 March 1678 – 28 July 1741) was an Italian[2] Baroque musical composer, virtuoso violinist, teacher and cleric. Born in Venice, he is recognized as one of the greatest Baroque composers, and his influence during his lifetime was widespread across Europe. He composed many instrumental concertos, for the violin and a variety of other instruments, as well as sacred choral works and more than forty operas. His best-known work is a series of violin concertos known as the Four Seasons.«

 

Ospedale de la Pieta (music school for orphan girls) – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ospedale_della_Piet%C3%A0

»The Ospedale della Pietà was a convent, orphanage, and music school in Venice. Like other Venetian ospedali, the Pietà was first established as a hospice for the needy. A group of Venetian nuns, called the Consorelle di Santa Maria dell’Umiltà, established this charitable institution for orphans and abandoned girls in the fourteenth century. By the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries the Pietà – along with the three other charitable Ospedali Grandi – was well known for its all-female musical ensembles that attracted tourists and patrons from around Europe. «

»The composer Antonio Vivaldi was appointed a violin teacher in 1703 and served in various roles through 1715, and again from 1723 to 1740. Much of Vivaldi’s sacred vocal and instrumental music was written for performance at the Pietà. The conservatory of the Pietà hospital was the only hospital to remain active until approximately 1830. All the other hospitals completely closed their musical activity during the first years of the nineteenth century. From an instrument inventory[3] dated 1790 we learn that during that year the Pietà hospital had still “four violins with used bows, four cellos, seventeen violins, two marine trumpets [this may in fact refer to violino in tromba marina], six small violas, two viola d’amore, two mandolines, two lutes, one theorbo, four hunting horns with accessories, two psalteries with harmonic box, two cymbals, three flutes, two big cymbals with spinets, six spinets. «

281. The Ancient library on Mars

281. The Ancient library on Mars

»Oh, from here did the music come…«, Palmina said very inspired.

The Peony Gondola followed them in the meanwhile 5 meter behind them, along this ancient street to be nearby if they need the Peony Gondola (Their music instruments are also in this Peony Gondola).

01 picture - a view of a little version of a Venetian Gondola (The Peony Gondola is a little bit bigger than this one).png

picture – a view of a little version of a Venetian Gondola (The Peony Gondola is a little bit bigger than this one)

Palma looked to the Peony Gondola and went to pick up his Viola da braccio and his Mandolin.
Palmina followed him and took also her Lutes and smiled.

»Come, Palma, let’s enter this ancient library!«

And Palma and Palmina entered the ancient Mars library.

As they where inside they realized that it was not dark inside.
A lot of colourful lights were inside. Lights in the different colours: yellow, Pink, green, light-blue, violet, red, green, golden light and colours which are unknown on earth .

»Oh, how interesting these colours are…«, Palma said, »I will later try to paint these colours in my paintings and you will help me to create them on earth, Palmina!«

The room was huge and high. It had exact the dimensions of the church »San Zulian« in Venice nearby Palma’s flat.

The style was also a little bit in Renaissance Style but more in Martian-Style.
There were in the walls a lot of books, scriptures, ancient paper rolls, and visual and acoustic media from metallic and glass or crystal- looking material.

The books are written in different languages of different cultures. But Palma and Palmina could not figure out what it is written about.

Between the book library there were paintings in the same size like in the Church »San Zulian« and the huge painting at the top looked similar to the painting style of Palma il Giovane. Paintings from the Mythological historic period, of the »golden age« from history.

»Who painted these huge paintings on Mars here in that beautiful library?«

Palma and Palmina felt suddenly deep in their heart some remembering.

Now they looked at each other very familiar.

So they remembered also the time as they saw each other after the concert in the San Zulian Church after the presentation of Palma’s painting and Palma went to the left side in the corner to speak with Palmina.

They both remembered the light beam from the window and now as they went also to the right back corner of this library they saw also a light coming and moving towards them.
This lights are a higher technology which adapt their light and position to the moving and to the need of the visitor of that library.

Palmina and Palma looked at each other thinking on their remembering.

In front of them there is a big door with a text they could not read.

Along the frame of the door were the old ancient 8 Trigramms in the order of the Cantico-Order.

»Oh, look isn’t that interesting? The 8 Signs are exact in the Order of the old vase the saint beautiful women gave us once?

Isn’t also Planet Mars associated to the IMAGE of THUNDER and to Sphere of Planet Mars in Dante’s ‚Divina Comaedia‘ in your Pipa Solo Nr.5?«, Palmina asked knowing.

Palmina took her music instrument and played the »Cantico-Hymnus« and it was like that:

_________________________________

And suddenly the ancient door opened slowly and an enormous warm and friendly light came out of the open entrance, inviting them to come in.

»You opened the ancient door of the library with the Melody of the Hymnus of Cultures here on Mars, Palmina!«

»Woooh!« she said and jumped in the air.
On Mars there is not such a strong Gravity like on earth Palmina jumped 3 times higher than on earth.

Palma tried to catch her as she was moving back to the planet and he hold her and she is sitting in his arms like in a chair.

»Oh, my Pigeon, you are so light here on Mars.«

Palmina smiled and put her arms around his neck and gave him a tender short kiss.

She said »Pi-«
He answered »Pa-«
She said »Pi-«
He answered »Pa-«
And both »Li-u-to-kiss!«

And they gave each other a lot of »bacci« (ital. »little kiss«).

Palma hold her on his arms and carried her through the door in the room of light.

As they entered this light-room they saw only white warm light.

They felt covered by pure light and suddenly a voice spoke the text of Dante’s Divine Comaedia in the 3rd part, as Dante and Beatrice arrived at the Paradise at the »Primum Mobile« which is pure light.

»Noi siamo usciti fore del maggior corpo al ciel ch’è pura luce «²
_______________________________
²[Dante, Divina Comaedia III (Paradiso), 30, 40-42]
_________________________________

»Oh, Palmina, this is a text from Dante’s Divine Comaedia and his travel through the heavens.«

»Oh, the deep spiritual love of Dante and Beatrice…«

»Yes, my inspiring pigeon…my uncles father , my grandfather named his daughter, the sister of my uncle with the name ‚Beatrice‘ after Dante’s Divina Comaedia«
»Oh, really? Oh, Palma, we are now in a higher dimension library! Look, they are showing us the history of Planet Mars from the beginning…«

»Yes, Palmina really! This is a mental library with visual books. They send us directly the visions in our heart and we can see the history of Mars. Look, there are ancient buildings. And this buildings exist before they had been destroyed in the war. And a lot of pyramids are also created to produce electric energy on a very high frequency so it is not dangerous for living beings.¹«

_______________
¹ Nicolas Teslar invented the high-frequency electric transmission and realized it in his live time on earth.
_________________

»Amazing!« Palmina said and saw how the nature, the sea, the animals, the living being on Mars lived in harmony like the Hymnus of Cultures – Different but united!«

»Yes, Palmina this is a vision!«

»Different Cultures united in one planet!!!«

The light waited till Palma and Palmina spoke about there feelings and thoughts and then the bright warm light continued to show them their light library.

»Oh, look there are music scores !!!«

»And over there is the score of the music with the mandolin solo which I created for you Palmina…«

»Oh,, yes, your music is a part of this Mars library. There are the music score also of the ‚Hymnus of Cultures‘ and the ‚8 Soli for Pipa and Viola‘ and the ‚Cantico delle Creature‘ and look they made a text on your Instrumental part in a very ancient Language and they associated the 8 Signs to this text, look… Maybe you are allowed to write it down, Palma?«

And the light showed Palma the ancient text and the whole music score and Palma started to write down the music score for Palmina.

And the music score is like that:

And after they saw this beautiful Peony Gondola Vision Palmina smiled and was very lucky and she wanted to try out the instrumental part of the music score.

And the Peony Gondola played for her the Piano and Violin Part like that:

===========================================

266. Lao tze saves innocent musicians at HAN-GU-Pass(函谷關 / 函谷关)

266. Lao tze saves innocent musicians at HAN-GU-Pass(函谷關 / 函谷关)

After they saw this Peony Gondola Vision they heard suddenly a soft beautiful female voice crying:

* * *

The female voice cried:

»Father, father! Do not make violence against me!!!!

…No…
Please, do not stroke my body…
…Noooo…
Please do not again such violence.
I am a musician…
Don’t hurt me so much, father, father…
What did I do wrong…?«

But they did not see what happened.

* * *

After that they saw this Vision suddenly they saw this:

* * *

On the sky, at the clouds in white colours Master Lao appeared shining.
Master Lao smiled and beside him was a beautiful intelligent female musician with an Asian music instrument.

A voice said: „I saved her life and she plays the Gin music instrument.
She became my music master student. She will follow my spiritual way in the west with a lot of others to meet the West-Music-Master. So I will send a messenger who will learn his language being able to translate my letter for him, asking him if he can send an official invitation to me and my students and musicians to enter his country and to visit his famous well known philosophical school.“

* * *

Then the Peony Gondola moved to the time of Lao tse and
landed at HAN-GU-Pass (函谷關 / 函谷关).
Now they saw this:

A group of female musicians and female singers gave in the last days beautiful concerts in the kingdom and had a lot of success.
They travelled from town to town after they get an official invitation to play as very famous and fine concert event of the town.

Now the Master of the HAN-GU-Pass (函谷關 / 函谷关) send an official invitation for the artists to play in their famous representative palais of the town.

Master Lao was also on his way and was also invited to this concert.

Full of expectation he comes there and wanted to send his new letter from there to the famous founder of his philosophical music school in far, far WEST.
Here he can stay a while till the answer from his old, old friend will come back to this west-china border station of the HAN-GU-Pass.

But a religious extremist group, spying all over the country found out that Master Lao will attend the concert at the famous palais at HAN-GU-Pass and they tried to plan an evil strategy against the meeting of the famous musicians and Master Lao.

* * *

In a secret meeting those members of an illegal religious extremist group meet and talked like that:

»…we can make intrigues against this concert. We have only to give orders to arrest them as criminals even they are innocent. We can use the laws for this…«

»Ai ya, good idea, I am working at the government as high office person and can use my mighty position to cancel the musicians from the program…Is the program printed yet?…«

»Oh, yes the concert invitation was sent all over the region in all parts along the kingdom. All will expect that Xie Ming will play the solo part in the concert.
We have to arrest them all and give orders to…
…and our religion will be expanded also in this culture here…60% of our religious members have high positions in the government. So we will soon influence all others – Ha,ha,ha.
Oh, our religious founder is great…«

»..Yes, our religious founder, he is great….«

»…great…«, all members said.

* * *

Lao tze was on his way to the Palais and made small eyes to see the group of musicians which seems to come in colourful beautiful traditional Asian cloth.

But what is happening to the musicians?
He saw that they are arrested by the police. But why?

264. Making music over a big distance

Palma could feel the music Palmina played on her Lute for him.

Palma smiled. He heard her playing in his inner heart.

* * *

As they saw this Peony Gondola Vision Palmina asked: „What did you do after I played this Melody? Hmm Palma?“

Palma looked shy and answered: “ I…I…I heard that you played an other Melody after you Played our ‚I miss you melody…and then…“

Palma was shy.
Palmina smiled and asked:“ Hmmm? What did you do in our Peony Gondola hour after I played the melody….Hmmmm?“

„Later, I went to the San Marco Place…“, Palma said and they continued to see their Peony Gondola dream and they saw this:

* * *

02 Gondola along the Big Promenade

02 Gondola along the Big Promenade

Palma went in the direction of the San Marco Place, but he has to turn left and go then a while a short way along the big Promenade ‚Riva di Siavoni‘ till he arrived on San Marco Place.

03 San Marco Cathedral

03 San Marco Cathedral

He went a few time along the San Marco Place to see the two Pigeons.

04 Dogans Palace on San Marco Place

But now he felt that Palmina’s ship is coming.

He went back to the water side of the San Marco Place to look if Palmina’s Ship is visible.

The moon made a bright light over Venice and the stars shined friendly.
The lagoon water was calm and the reflection of the moon and the stars looked peacefully.

07 view over the Lagoon in the east direction
07 view over the Lagoon in the east direction

* * *

Palmina went up to see the calm sea on her ship, to fell the soft wind in her beautiful hairs, to see Venice slowly coming.
She played very beautiful on her lute and smiled.

08 first colours bevor the sun rise
08 first colors on the south east horizon before the sun rise

Slowly the horizon turned brighter and in a while the sun will rise over the sea.

Normally the ships coming from outside had to wait up to 40 days in the 16th century till they where allowed to enter the lagoon water of Venice.

But Palma il Giovane could arrange it that the ship which was on his way to Venice could pass without any waiting.
Maybe the Republic of Venice knows also who Palmina’s relatives were and the ship and its passengers were threat as V.I.P.s.

The officers looked surprised as the ship passed the control-harbour near todays „Lido“

„Oh, Look a princess is lute playing… This is the V.I.P. ship we should allow passing and entering the waters of Venice“ –

„How beautiful she plays…“

The Officers looked wondering and looked behind the slowly moving ship.

* * *

Palma standing on the San Marco Place looked expecting in the East direction and played on his Mandolin.

Palmina played coming with her ship – Palma played waiting with his Mandolin – and the are now coming closer and closer – in their hearts there is no physical distance

Slowly, far on the east-south horizon the sun raised bright and the ship of Palmina was visible.

A few birds flew at the morning sky.

In a few minutes the ship will stand directly on the left side of the left column at the San Marco Place.
Palma smiled and played his Mandolin.

* * *

As they saw this beautiful Peony Gondola Vision Palmina took her Pipa Lute and Palma took his Viola da braccio.

„Let us play our ‚8 Soli for Pipa and Viola'“, Palmina said innocently.

263. Remembering the »I miss you melody«

263. Remembering the »I miss you melody«

And as they moved under the stars of Venice with their Peony Gondola Palma said to Palmina: »Palmina?«

»Hm?«

»Did you remember the time I missed you so much as you lived on that far east island and made your concert tours?«

»Yes, Palma, yes. I could feel that you stood under my little window in the „Calle de la pieta“ and played the „I miss you melody“ as Mandolin solo…«

Now they saw this remembering Peony Gondola Vision:

* * *

Palma finished today at the early evening his painting work at the Palazzo Vendramin. Palma painted Palmina secretly in a painting and he wanted to look if there are any new news by her Pigeon from that east island concert tour.

Palmina send today a new letter to Palma but the administrators of the Church of Social Media and its „privacy criminals“ read the letter and erased it.

Palma felt this but he transformed his feelings into creative music.
As he arrived in the little street – the „Calle de la pieta“ where Palmina’s little room was in the house of her family, the baker’s shop on the „Campo Bandiera e Moro“ – he put his painting utensils on the floor and took his little Mandolin, looked up to her open window and played for her, although he knows that at this moment she was not back from her concert tour, but maybe the ship arrived earlier, in this case she would hear his music.

And Palma played like that:

VIDEO: (I miss you melody in g-minor) https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCeM3qMrz0nT2h8FYPG5zEMQ

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCeM3qMrz0nT2h8FYPG5zEMQ

* * *

In this moment Palmina felt his music and smiled and she could hear the sound of this music in her inner heart.

She opened her eyes and looked through her little window on the ship which will arrive in a few hours at Venice.

She looked at the bright shining stars and the reflection of the friendly looking moon on the water of the silent sea around Venice and it seemed to shine brighter.

»Yes, now Palma thinks about me and he plays our „I miss you melody“«, Palmina smiled thinking on her Palma il Giovane.

Palmina took her little but heavy Pipa-lute and plugged very, very soft also this melody at this 23 o’clock-hour.

Now the stars seemed to shine more brighter and there was visible a shooting star.

Palmina smiled and did a secret wish closing her eyes.

* * *

In this moment Palma could feel this secret music moment and looked also up to the stars over Venice.

He saw two white Pigeons flying in the direction to the San Marco Cathedral.

»You are right, Palma«, Palmina said proud, »no one can take this Venice in our hearts away from us…«

They hold their hands and went slowly in the soft evening which was slowly coming and the light of the sky turned colourful inspiring.

Colours which can be important for a painter…

* * *

Palma had an idea and took some music score he composed and without any explanation the Peony Gondola moved for a short while 300 or 400 years in the future.
Palma saw a few musicians playing something and wrote down the music making a copy.

After that the Peony Gondola moved back to the 16th century at this romantic special evening walk at Giudecca.

And they continued to dream and they saw this:

* * *
During Palma and Palmina walked in the south direction they saw a few Gondolieri sitting on the street with their music instruments.

Palma said to Palmina:»Wait here, Palmina. I have a surprise for you…«

Palmina looked shy and waited.

Palma went to the 5 musicians and asked them something whispering.

„Can you play this music?“

„Fa bene Signore, as you will, we can play your composition.
For your bella Signorina, hmmm?“, said one of the Gondoliers.

Palma smiled and the musicians took the music sheets and they started to play Palma’s composition which he played for Palmina once as Mandolin solo being with her alone in the Peony Gondola.

Palmina looked smiling surprised and listened.

»Oh, Palma. My Palma, my composer and painter. Such a nice surprise.«, Palmina said with her fine soft voice.

And now Palma gave the musicians the music score from music which is from the time 300 or 400 years later.

»Oh, what’s that…«
The musicians looked surprised a little bit desperate but finally they found orientation in the music score.

»Hm, never played such music…Ok, let’s try this…
From where did you get this music score…?
…fa bene (ok), lets try it“

And the 5 Gondolieri started to play this with their music instruments (Mandolin, Violin, Viola da braccio, Mandola, Lute)
And is was like that:

VIDEO: (5 Gondolieri version of a music from 300 or 400 years later) https://youtu.be/kPnbI7swkNk


* * *

During they saw this Peony Gondola Vision Palmina said:»Oh, Palma what a music surprise. This is the music we will hear in 300 or 400 years if we meet us again…
Thank you for this beautiful music surprise to me….«

»Yes, a little thank you that you played my compositions for me. You remember the 8 Soli for your instrument, 40 minutes of music….«

»Oh, yes I remember, a few years ago, the Spring Melody in the solo Nr. 4…«

As they listened this music Palmina put her head on Palma’s side and the Peony Gondola started to move along the side of Giudecca island where they made their evening walks and then the Peony Gondola took off to flew soft and slow under the evening sky of Venice.

They saw all the beauty of Venice in these moments.

Palma smiled and Palmina smiled.

Since Palmina read Palma’s love letter Nr. 261 short before 11 p.m. yesterday, both are feeling a warm light in their hearts.

Yes, the Peony Gondola connects them beyond time and space.

And after they saw this Peony Gondola Vision they continued to dream their Peony Gondola dream like that:

„Palma?“
„Hmm?“
„I do rehearsal so much so my fingers have pain…“

Palma smiled, looked into her beautiful eyes and after a while he took her talented hands and kissed them soft and tender.

After that vision they saw this Peony Gondola Vision:

* * *

Today Palma always looked at the sky and he saw a beautiful cloud heart like that:

  picture 1 – cloud heart at the skydav

„This is a heart from my Pigeon…She thinks on me…“, Palma thought and he looked to the sky.

* * *

Two weeks later.

„Our ship is going the right course. In a few days we are there…“, the Capitain of the Sailing ship said to Palma il Giovane.
A soft wind was now in their face and hairs.
Palma smiled.
Palmina smiled as he saw again a heart on the sky like that:

dav

     picture 2 of heart on the sky

* * *

During Palmina made again rehearsal in her room over the big Place, in Pafos on Cyrus Island she heard suddenly music down at the ancient place.
As Palmina heard the music she felt no paint on her finger.
This time Palmina is doing rehearsal very much on her Lute and  this makes her finger pain a little bit.
But after Palma’s music inspiration for Pianosolo she felt healthy. (Palmina likes to hear this music via the Peony Gondola)

* * *

Today it was again a sunny day, Palmina heard a music outside.
A good girls choir is doing rehearsal down at the big ancient place.

And now they started to make music with all their instruments.

„Oh…this is…“, Palmina said surprised.

She looked out of her window to see the musicians.
She smiled and saw: This is Palma!
My Palma il Giovane is playing the Mandolin! Oh, he playes our secret deep love melody…‘, Palmina said and listened also to the music a while.
„…oh he brought the most famous Singer of Armenia….
What a honour for our small island!
Yes, here on Cyprus Island my mother-side-relative Catharina Cornaio was the last Queen of Zyprus Island in the 15th century and she was also the Queen of Armenia…and  a Byzantine Princess. She was also a honour citizen of the Republic of Venice….“
Palmina smiled and had tears in her eyes.
„Yes, this is my Palma. He comes with the famous Venetian Eurasian Ensemble from Venice  to make a performance for me on that beautiful place here in our city Pafos.
Oh, Signora Ming from the Ming dynasty, living now also at Giudecca Island with her family,  playes the Pipa part…“
This chinese family came once officially protected by the Republic of Venice, from that Pacific Island to move to Venice.
Now Palmina took her own Pipa Lute and started to play the secret love melody together with the performance down at the big place where hundreds of people and children were standing to listen this little open air concert.

All the members of this Venice Titian Art Gallery music ensemble played with all their heart and the people could feel it.
Maybe also because Palmina played in this  moment from her window with her lute happy smiling with them. Palmina’s innocent cheeks turned colourful light-red.
„Oh, my Palma, my composer, my painter, my writer…he took all this long way from Venice with a ship to make a concert for me, to express his sympathy and love to me…Oh, Palma… Oh, my Palma!“, Palmina thought during she played and she made a deep sigh.

And the music she heard was like that:

* * *

After they saw the Peony Gondola Vision they looked out of their Peony Gondola over the colorful  horizon with a beautiful evening sunset at the longest day in the year.

Palmina smiled and she put her head on Palmas side. Palma put his arm around her and kissd her on her head tender

* * *

»+++ BREAKING NEWS – BREAKING WORLDPRESS NEWS +++
THE HIGHEST COURT OF THE REPUBLIC OF VENICE DECIDED TO SET FREE CARDINAL BORROMÄUS, KNOWN AS THE PROTECTOR OF CHILDREN AND SACRED MUSIC. +++ BREAKING NEWS – BREAKING WORLDPRESS NEWS +++«

Palmina went this morning along the San Marco Place and bought this fresh printed ‚Worldpress‘ newspaper.

She started reading and said: »Look Palma, they write about you…and,and, the Cardinale will today come to Venice….read, read, looook,look, Palma…“

Palma took the newspaper and read:

»…the highest court announced today that „…it IS NOT A CRIME to help too much poor and ill persons… “ The orders given by Cardinale Hell from the Vatican State to arrest the innocent Cardinal Borromaeus are not accepted by the highest court in order that Cardinale Hell is now declared as officially as criminal.

PEOPLE SAY HE IS A SAINT

Cardinale Borromaeus did found a lot of institutions to protect poor children and girls from child prostitution in the tradition to the Saint Nicolaus.
Today he will visit the „Le Zitelle“-institution on Giudecca island and the girls orchestra will play Welcome concert in their church and in their beautiful gardens behind the buildings of the „Santa Maria de la Presentatione“.

„This feast should now be that big every year“ the representatives of the R.O.V., the Republic of Venice announced now, „…the feast is a traditional feast as ‚Thank you‘ for surviving the Pest“ – but now we decided to make it as one of the biggest feast in the year in Venice“.

A BIG BRIDGE WILL BE BUILD

Along the new feast there will be a new long bridge only for the duration of the days of the „Il Redentore feast“.
The people can go along the big bridge to go over the water to the „Church il Redentore“.

* * *

After they read the newspaper standing on the San Marco Place a lot of pigeon had landed around them and looked up to them as if they did understand the newspaper.
Now the pigeons flew to the Gondola which was waiting for them at the other end of the San Marco Place.

Both went there and Palmina and Palma entered a Gondola .Palma helped her to enter the Gondola and smiled.

Palmina smiled and said: »Palma, I am so proud on you. Cardinale Borromaeus will visit our „Le Zitelle Orchestra“ on Giudecca and the „Cantico delle Creature“ will be performed, and, and your painting will be presented at the Chiesa Il Redentore.
Oh, Palma, oh, Palma, what a big feast today will be. Oh, I love you, my painter, my composer, my love letter writer, my children protector….“

And Palma and Palmina looked sideways to the island Giudecca and smiled.
Soon the big traditional ‚Il Redentore festival‘ will start here in Venice.

Palmina put her hand on Palma’s hand very tender and Palma could feel it.
Now he looked at her beautiful smiling face. He realised how much he loves her and the sun made her hairs beautiful.

Slowly the Gondola moved to the other side in the direction of Giudecca Island.
They will have a few hours of rehearsal for the concert today at evening.
The innocent girls came all with their music instruments and also the girls and children choir was there.
As they saw Palma and Palmina coming to the Le Zitelle they waved all from their windows.

„Look, Palma and Palmina are coming to make a rehearsal with us. Let us take all our music instruments and come at the concert stage in the garden.

And all the girls and children came in the Le Zitelle Garden to sit at their place on the stage to be ready to make a rehearsal of Palma’s Hymnus.

How often Cardinal Hell tried to pay millions to stop this music-social projects for children. How often he gave a lot of money to people to sabotage this social projects. But now Cardinal Borromaeus is their strong hand of the heaven to stopp this intrigues against these poor children.

And now they made the rehearsal like that:

At he evening the saint Cardinale Borromaeus came and the fireworks in Venice begun and it looked fantastic like that, so that also painters made paintings of this historic moment in modern civilization – to protect children, art and culture.

225. Happy Birthday, Palma il Giovane!

225. Happy Birthday, Palma il Giovane!

They continued to dream their Peony Gondola Vision and they saw this:

* * *

The next day Palmina had always to think about Palma’s Piano solo he composed for his beloved Palmina, his inspiration, his Saint Cecilia.

Today she had two talented music students at the Gardens of Giudecca.
The mother of the talented girls is also playing a music instrument and it is very creative to teach them music lessons.

As Palmina went back along the Giudecca island to the »Le Zitelle« she teaches also the girls there in music.

Now she has a little break between her music lessons.
Sitting in her official flat in the 3rd floor of the »Le Zitelle« building she is thinking on her Palma, which has today birthday and she sat down on her little table at the window and started to write a Pigeon-letter mail to her Palma il Giovane who lives on the other side of the Lagoon water on the San Marco Place.
From her window she can see directly to the San Marco Place and she smiled.

She looked to the cage of the Letter-Pigeon and smiled to her.

»After my music lessons here, I will go to Palma and celebrate with him his birthday in our Peony Gondola. But first I will send him a Pigeon-letter mail to wish him happy birthday…«, Palmina thought lucky and smiling.

* * *

Palma felt in this moment that she is writing a letter to her and he stopped for a while his painting work at the famous palazzo in Venice.
In his thoughts he could feel, no he could see her sitting beautifully on her table writing a Pigeon-Letter Mail for him.

In his imagination it looks so beautiful and poetic how his sweet Palmina is thinking and writing for him.
Palma cleaned fast his fingers, full of wet colours and took a sheet of paper and a pencil to draw how he feels and sees Palmina in his deep heart Vision.

Palma made a very fast drawing.

picure 4 - drawing by Palma il Giovane

picture – drawing by Palma il Giovane

Yes, Palma is the INVENTOR OF THE DRAWING AS INDEPENDENT ART DISCIPLINE.
Before Palma there was only the tradition that a pencil drawing is only the draft of an oil painting and the drawing has no meaning for art.
Palma was famous for doing fast and very often own drawings and these drawings had been the first time in the history of art defined as a complete independent art discipline.

Palma send her an imaginary cheek kiss and Palmina smiled in this moment and kissed the letter she wrote:

„Venice, Giudecca-Island 16….

My beloved Palma!

Today on your BIRTHDAY, I write you a little Pigeon-Letter-Mail.
I am so lucky that we can see us now every day and I am now a part of your life.
The Pigeon will fly from here at the »Le Zitelle« over the Lagoon water directly to your window at the 2nd floor at the San Marco Place. And no one will destroy the letter. No one will steal the letter. No one will destroy our deep love and our deep music art friendship.
I know that I am inspiring you and that you are always lucky to be creative in painting, composing and writing in order to these inspirations.
Last time we met in our Peony Gondola at 23 o’clock you composed from your heart a music piece I loved so much – The Piano solo –

Palma, thank you!
My composer, my painter and writer…

I would like to tell you that I am planing to play several compositions from you in my little fine concerts.
Today we can speak about this in our Peony Gondola at 23 o’clock celebrating your birthday.

Dear Palma, I am so looking forward to see you!

Happy birthday, dear Palma!

Your you deeply loving

Palmina, your Pigeon, your Saint Cecilia“

And as they saw this Peony Gondola Vision Palmina took her Lute and played for him being with him in this beautiful Peony Gondola.

And suddenly a text appeared written in an old Chinese language like this on the evening sky.

說萬物者莫說乎澤,*)

„Of all that forces that GIVE JOY things, there is no more gladdening than the LAKE ☱.“

And then Palma took his Viola music instrument and Palmina took her Pipa Lute and they made together music at their Peony Gondola hour at 23 o’clock like this about the image of „LAKE, the joyous“ :

This Painting by Palma il Giovane is on the big famous Dogan“s Palace (Palazzo Ducale) where always delegations of different cultures officially had a intercultural friendship event as peace DIALOGUE between the mighty Republic of Venice and the business partners from all over the world like Europe, Asia and Africa.

* * *

They continued to dream their Peony Gondola Vision like that:

* * *

„Oh, so much Cultures we have on this world. Fantastic!!!!l „, Palmina said like a young girl with her soft fine voice and continued smiling with this asian-like beautiful eyes:

„…this beautiful different cultures with their different music and art traditions,… fantastic…
our world is so big, I would like to huge it ..“, Palmina said and hugged Palma.

„..this beautiful cultures are often visiting Venice, our mighty Republic of Venice the – R.O.V. and I often play at the welcome concert in the Dogan’s Palace on our San Marco Place…often an artwork from you or from me…“, Palmina said euphoric.

„…From all over the world the representative of their culture are coming and greeting our Republic from Europe Asia, Africa. From Thailand, Vietnam, Bangladesh, China, Cipan (Japan), Korea, Philippines, Russia…Armenia, Cyprus- Byzantium…bringing a message to us of peace and friendship…They want all a peacefull relation, a cultural dialogue to our mighty Republic of Venice and of course good economic relations with us Europeans…“, Palma said very wise.

picture 03

picture 2-3 – detail of Palmas painting in the Palazzo Ducale (Dogan’s Palace) in Venice

„So it is important that all cultures are in a harmonic peaceful relation…in a good DIALOGUE!
…Palma, didn’t you compose a music dialogue for Chinese lute Pipa (or other Chinese or other Asian Instruments) and Viola da braccio as the Chinese delegation did visit our Republic with their huge Chinese ships, waiting outside the „Lido“, coming with hundreds of guests to bring a peaceful culture program, a cultural exchange dialogue concert? Didn’t you?“

„Oh yes, I will never forget this. It was years ago…Oh, Palmina, my Dialogue for Pipa琵琶 and Viola. Do you remember the begining melody?“, Palma asked.

Palmina took her Lute and plugged slowly and smiling with shining eyes, only a girl or a women has, if she is loving…

G-d-e-a

Palmina smiled to Palma and send to his heart a warm and golden, tender light energy playing her lute.

Palma could feel this also in his deep heart.

After that,now Palma took his Viola and plugged:

c-g-d‘-a‘

„Do you remember, Palmina?“

„Yes, your composition you wrote as Dialogue for my instrument and your instrument…It was dedicated as dialogue between the East Cultures and the West Cultures between the Ming Dynasty representatives and Venice.
Yes, Palma, I remember very good and I love this creation from you very much!“

Palmina gave Palma a tender kiss on his cheek and Palma could feel this.

Now Palma composed deep in his heart a music reflection and variation to the main „Dialogue Music Theme“, the main melody of this dialogue composition like that and Palmina put her head and Palma’s side to hear this music coming directly from Palma’s heart and what she listened was this:
